Percutaneous thrombectomy is being widely used as a sole therapy or as an adjunct to other therapies for the management of thrombotic occlusions in arteries, veins and grafts. Various techniques used can be broadly classified under percutaneous aspiration thrombectomy, pull-back thrombectomy and trapping, recirculation mechanical thrombectomy, direct contact/non-recirculation thrombectomy and direct or indirect ultrasound thrombectomy. In the following article, we will provide a review of these techniques describing the commonly utilized devices and their characteristics.
